There is a way to use the standalone launcher with the steam install, I do it as I use a joypad and steam integration with or without big picture messes up the controls (right analog acts as mouse, super fast response, unplayable). I'll look for the command to add to the launcher and post it up From a reddit post The step: find the Launcher.exe, it located in steam_folder\steamapps\common\Warframe\Tools\Launcher.exe Make shortcut from Launcher.exe Open shortcut properties, add "-cluster:public -registry:Steam" without quotation mark after Origininal Target. Click Ok to save. Now you you have sortcut to run Warframe directly without steam. You can move the shortcut as you like ie. Desktop.
